Optimal planning for
the mining industry

New methods for an old sector.

Getting the best out of your resources!

When we think of mining, we often think of large coal mines – and these will gradually disappear with increasing decarbonization. Yet mining encompasses a lot more than the extraction of coal: (quartz) sand, gravel, salt, limestone and many others are also extracted through mining! Another aspect which tends to be overlooked here is that the production of green energy also consumes raw materials of this kind – for example in the production of wind turbines and photovoltaic systems.

In mining, too, it is literally a matter of getting the most out of your resources. This is now possible with digitization and the use of mathematical optimization.

Using mathematical optimization to achieve optimal
use of resources
